The Engineers Child

	  		Here's a song that was recently requested on Cowpie.  Hank Snow did it in 
the key of A but I'm wrote it out in G.  It was on Hank Snow's "Singing 
Ranger" album. 
 
The Engineer's Child 
 
(G) A little child on a (C) sickbed (G) lay 
And (C) death was very (G) near 
She was the pride and (C) only (G) child of a (A7) railroad engin- (D) eer 
His duty had called him from (G) those he loved 
And (D) seeing that hope was (G) dim 
While a tear he (G7) shed, to his (C) wife he said 
Just have two (D) lanterns (G) trimmed 

tabchorus
(C) Just hang a light as I (G) pass tonight (C) Hang it where it (G) can be (D) seen If our (G) baby's dead just (C) show the red If she's (G) better then (D) show the (G) green
tab
(Instrumental bridge) (G) In a little house by the (C) railroad (G) track A (C) mother with watchful (G) eye Saw a (G) gleam of hope and a (C) feeble (G) smile As the (A7) train went rushing (D) by Just one short look was his (G) only chance To (D) see the light (G) agleam In the midnight (G7) air there a-(C) rose a prayer Thank (G) God the (D) light was (G) green Repeat chorus Jeanie Ramos [email protected]
